Learning outcomes

The learning outcomes of the class “Comparative Literature: History and Theory” LM37 lead students to acquire a deep knowledge of the historical, cultural, and literary context in comparison and contrast related to the subject imparted. By allowing students to master comparative methodological tools, the course aims to provide useful information to comment, interpret, contextualize, historicize texts belonging to different literary genres and to develop hermeneutic-critical analysis skills. The acquired tools will address long-lasting themes and topoi belonging to chronologically and topographically different literatures. At the end of the course, the student must demonstrate that s/he has acquired knowledge and skills that are in-depth and adequate to perfect critical judgment (knowledge and understanding); to have gained the ability to learn and understand different methodologies necessary to argue, as well as skills to develop personal ideas (learning skills); to know how to convey information, new topics and problems related to the subject imparted (making judgments); finally, having the ability to integrate knowledge and manage complexity with a high degree of autonomy in broader (or interdisciplinary) contexts (communication skills).

Program

The course will present and discuss some of the most recent theoretical and methodological developments in literary studies, fostered by interdisciplinary interactions with the fields of
- cognitive neuroscience,
- empirical aesthetics,
- computer science.
These theoretical/methodological frameworks will be compared with critical traditions such as formalism and structuralism, reception theory and psychoanalytic criticism, new historicism and sociological criticism. The discussion will focus on both risks and opportunities in the combination of traditional research methods with quantitative/experimental approaches.
Each analysis will be developed around one or more case studies, involving questions in stylistics, narratology, aesthetics, theoretical linguistics, and literary historiography, with a distinctly comparative approach. Leading case studies will be:
- the reception of Italian literary history in foreign countries;
- the identification of the “authorial fingerprint” of writers such as William Shakespeare, Robert Musil, and Elena Ferrante;
- the formal experimentations of modern and contemporary authors such as James Joyce, Thomas Pynchon, Roberto Bolaño, and Claudio Magris;
- the effects of the digital revolution on the experience of reading (reading on paper vs. reading on screen, online social reading).

Teaching materials and detailed information are available on the Moodle platform.

Examination Methods

The teaching method will involve frontal lessons to be held on three weekly days for a total load of 54 hours (9 CFU). During the lessons, students will be encouraged to participate actively, via presentations to the class and seminar-like discussions. Non-attending students will have to agree a program with some variation to facilitate independent study.

During the final oral exam, students will have to show that they have gained critical skills during the course, by means of analytical and argumentative ability to link the various theoretical and methodological frameworks in the interpretation of literary texts. Students must also speak with appropriate language.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
